Karl-Anthony Towns Headshot

Towns finished with 19 points (6-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 16 rebounds, four steals, three blocks and two assists in 48 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 loss to the 76ers.

Towns struggled from the field Tuesday, finishing with just 19 points on 16 shots. The team continues to struggle to utilize Towns on the offensive end, as evidenced by his 16 shots in 48 minutes, compared to Jimmy Butler's 33 shots in 45 minutes. Scoring aside, Towns was excellent in other areas, collecting a season-high four steals while adding three blocks and 16 rebounds. The efficiency is merely an outlier, and he will look to bounce back in a favorable matchup against the Kings on Thursday.

Ibraheim Campbell Headshot

Campbell (hamstring) signed with the Texans' practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Campbell was waived by the Browns off of injured reserve in November, but he has found a new home in Houston for the time being. The third-year pro played eight games with the Browns this season, compiling 16 tackles (13 solo).
12:24 am (EST)
Devontae Booker Headshot

Booker rushed for 22 yards on nine carries and added 12 yards on two catches during Denver' 23-0 beating of the Jets.

The 11 touches were just the second time this season that Booker broke double digits on the season. The second-year back is in a place of uncertainty as new offensive coordinator looks to see what works in Denver's backfield. While Booker is likely the future at the position for Denver, the Broncos seem content with leaning heavily on C.J. Anderson who averaged 1.71 offensive snaps per touch on 41 offensive snaps during Sunday's game as compared to Booker's more limited usage rate of 2.45 offensive snaps per touch with 27 total offensive snaps.
12:08 am (EST)
Jamaal Charles Headshot

Charles caught all three of his targets for 12 yards and did not record a rush during Denver's 23-0 win over the Jets on Sunday.

The veteran back slid back down to a No. 3 role on Sunday with just five offensive snaps behind C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. With Denver out of the playoff race, some have wondered when Charles will give way to rookie De'Angelo Henderson, who has been inactive for much of the season. That doesn't seem likely at the moment. Head coach Vance Joseph has preached about Denver's commitment to try to win out and play veteran players while doing so. Charles might not see the inactive sheet, but he's unlikely to see much more of the field either with Anderson and Booker leading the way.
12:03 am (EST)
Cody Latimer Headshot

Latimer hauled in two of three targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 23-0 win over the Jets.

Latimer has been consistently seeing 70 percent of Denver's offensive snaps or more in recent weeks, but got onto the field for just 31 of 70 offensive plays on Sunday. The Broncos leaned more on two-tight end looks on Sunday as they played keep away with a multi-score lead for much of the game. Latimer offers little value as the No. 3 target on a weak passing team and might see that value diminish further if Denver is able to have similar success against struggling upcoming opponents such as Indianapolis and Washington.

Emmanuel Sanders Headshot

Sanders converted his five targets during Sunday's 23-0 win over the Jets into a single 15-yard catch.

Sanders hasn't been quite right since Week 5 when he sprained his ankle against the Giants. He's topped 30 yards receiving just once in his five games since that injury. Though the Broncos finally snapped an eight-game losing streak, nothing about this passing attack and his relative health makes him a dependable target for down the stretch.
Yesterday 11:53 pm (EST)
Brian Gibbons Headshot

Gibbons scored a goal and added an assist during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Los Angeles.

This was just the second multi-point showing of the season for Gibbons, and he also entered Tuesday's contests mired in an offensive funk with only one assist through his previous six outings. However, the Boston College alum is having a sneaky good campaign with 12 goals, 18 points and a plus-14 rating through 29 games. There are plenty of settings where those numbers move the needle, and Gibbons is currently skating in a top-six role.
Yesterday 11:38 pm (EST)
Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick allowed stopped just 21 of 26 shots during Tuesday's 5-1 loss to New Jersey.

The uncharacteristic showing ended Quick's six-game winning streak and was also just his fourth outing all season with more than three goals allowed. Even with Tuesday's disappointing result, the American netminder boasts a high-end 15-9-1 record, .926 save percentage and 2.30 GAA, and there aren't many matchups where Quick shouldn't be viewed as a solid option.
Yesterday 11:32 pm (EST)
Cory Schneider Headshot

Schneider saved 16 of 17 shots during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Los Angeles.

After allowing five goals on just 28 shots in a loss to Columbus in his previous start, this was a nice rebound from Schneider. He's up to a solid 12-6-3 record, .920 save percentage and 2.64 GAA for the campaign, as the established veteran is quickly proving that last season's career-worst showing was a statistical outlier. Schneider should be viewed as a solid option in the majority of matchups moving forward.
Yesterday 11:24 pm (EST)
Mason Plumlee Headshot

Plumlee contributed 10 points (5-7 FG), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during a 103-84 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Plumlee picked up his first double-double of the season as he received another start with Nikola Jokic (ankle) sidelined. The 13 rebounds also marked a season high for him. As soon as Jokic returns, Plumlee's value will likely take a significant hit.
